After the completion of the exchange each participant is obliged to realize one workshop in his school to transfer the knowledge that will be acquired during the exchange.
The objectives of the project are: to strengthen the capabilities of young people so that they can contribute to positive changes in the environment in which they live, promoting European values of quality life; promoting values such as freedom, tolerance, acceptance of diversity and respect for children and human rights among young people in Macedonia, and developing the ability to recognize child offenses and how to react in such a situation.
